Today, I ran my writing through Grammarly again. Plain lazy to do it actually, because it usually took a while to finish. I would have preferred my beloved supervisor does it ha..ha..ha..
But I wanted to gain less harassment from him and more pointers, so I reviewed my chapter in the program anyway. Aduhai! took half a day for 16 pages.
These are my favourite mistakes yang di’tegur’ oleh Grammarly:
I always..always…write – and also. heee..ini adalah direct translation drpd dan juga lah kut. In english, this is considered as redundant writing. I have to choose either to write and or also. Not ‘and also’ hu..hu..hu kurang lah word count ku 😉
One more phrase, I am in love with is this – ‘…xyz need to … that there is a need to…‘ Sometimes soooo lah many in a paragraph. So this is also called redundancy!
And Grammarly always said: my sentences are WORDY! ha..ha..ha at least ada lah jugak hasilnya I read law for 7 years. So eventually I always need to cut things down. Trim here and there. Sometimes they look rather simple, but that is required of me. Direct to the point. Stop beating around the bush. Just say it!
